How could a chipped ZX80 go for $259?

I fear that whomever has bought it thinks it's something it's not.

I dunno. If your only exposure to ZX80 prices was eBay listings that probably doesn't seem excessive. They've fetched inflated prices on eBay as long asni can remember.

Yes, doesn't surprise me either. I've seen ZX81s go for $100+ and the ZX80 is rarer and more arguably more collectible.

Your photo was pretty clear, showing that chunk missing from corner. Nobody can really complain as your listing was fairly straight-up, so I wouldn't stress over it. :D

Hmmm price is respectable given its availability.

It is a collectors item afterall.
